An excellent idea, that Digitool would like to assist in seeing happen.  An
interactive document that combines the collective expertise and experience
of the MCL community would be useful to all of us.

I suggest brainstorming about it (its structure, content, authors,
contributors, needed tools, etc.) via info-mcl.  At a later point we can
spin off a separate work group that periodically reports back to the MCL
community.  Digitool will participate, as appropriate.
